Nice looking truck, didn’t see a year in OP but it is clean.
A lot of stuff on the truck BUT remember all that lift and 16” tire equates to a harder than stock ride, which in turn MAY result in a not so happy owner riding around in a nice looking truck.
Everything in the suspension has been max’d out there isn’t much room for movement, ride in it a lot before buying, take it on a bumpy road too just to see how it will perform.
If you think you can live with the ride, WAIT to buy and let the ride sink in...

Did they say why thy were selling such a nice looking truck ?
If the truck has been up for sale for a while and you REALLY want it offer ⅔ the price and see where it gets you.

IMHO… it is going to be harder to sell than the owner things...

I like the truck it looks real clean, but the ride is probably terrible...his driveway is really nice too.

What year is it? Is it a 03?

You're probably right, but Ranger and great ride doesn’t go together anyway. Now I have a good ride, but I wouldn’t call it great. My ride still doesn’t compare to the average brand new vehicle.

I know, my ranger IMO rides like crap...I think some of it is because my shocks are gettin pretty rusty. But even when my grandparents had it new it didnt ride reeeeally good. Going from my moms cavalier to the ranger...that was hard haha. That cav rides grrrrreat.

I've seen those KYBs on eBay. They are listed as Belsteins but when you open the page they say what they really are.

Ya Ranger don’t ride really good but the 16” KM2s, that is the big problem… Load Ranger “E”…

16” KMs just upgraded to a heavier side wall, this equals to hard ride.

My 33 x 16 are hard riding but add in the SL, the cranked TBs and this really equates to hard ride.

BUT, the truck is a good looking truck and all that may not matter.

Luck on the choice.
